I hate to be this guy, but the Bible says what the Bible says. When we prune the parts we don't like out of it, we form God in our own image. I hate the thought of hell, especially because I have friends and family who are going there. But look at the other side of it all.  Look at the betrayal, the mockery, the scourging, and the crucifixion of Christ. What suffering He endured for our sake! Why did He do that?
I had a cousin tell me that she could not imagine her children having a sin nature, therefore they don't need a savior. How sad. She denies the sin nature and thus a need for salvation. This is why I think it is crucial to believe all of the Bible. (Even the parts we cannot understand.)

The point wasn’t necessarily where I stand on eternal hellfire (whether I believe it or not), but it was about an odd thought concerning the popular imagery involved (I do admit that I got tangential and put the discussion off track.) If God decided that’s what’s gonna happen to those who aren’t of Him, then I have no qualms about it lol. What we do have in this thread is a neat little theological question to ask God if He takes questions from idiots like me who like to know odd tidbits of information.

 Funny enough, as I was going about my day, I think there may be a certain fringe state of consciousness that could apply to the topic that is normally unobservable because it may typically be instantaneous in the human experience. There may be a perpetuation of a moment near a traumatically induces black out state, but again, is that state full consciousness? It reminds me of a dream I had of dying a few years back (I wish i could explain it, because it was a beautiful and disturbing dream, however that works lol)

 Anyway, I thought it was a good topic, the original concept took me all of 5 minutes to put together late last night and it took me all day to come up with my own best guess at an answer today. I think I make people worry about me unintentionally lol. Thanks for playing!
